This week her storefront has been repainted and her sign is gone. Her entry is partly open and I can see new tiles stacked up.

Wondering if she's renovating, moving or closing.

Anyone know?

That's always been one of the most unfathomable things in Mexico for me. Businesses suddenly close, without any sign anywhere saying that they have moved to another location, and where, or that they have closed for good.

If you need a new, more reliable, certainly more reasonably priced alterations person, Sra. Blanca Castro is on the south side of Ocampo, in the next block east of Rossy’s (former) location. Look for the sewing machine-shaped sign above the door. Her cell: 331 066 2064. Oh— in small letters under the little sewing machine is every frugal woman’s mantra, “Make do and mend.”

Could you be more specific about directions LuvSouth? I do not know where Rossy WAS located so I'm a little confused. For some reason, propane dryers kill elastics in Mexico. I have skirts and pants that need the elastics replaced. I used to do this stuff myself and I do have a sewing machine but threading it (even with a magnifying glass) is getting to be an exercise in frustration.

I don't have a propane dryer or any dryer. I hang my clothes up on a clothesline, I thought it was the sun. I therefore conclude that Mexico kills elastic, I don't know why.

LOL! Good to know. It's a mystery why this only happens in Mexico.

Someone posted this on FB in response to Rossy:

If you do happen to go to Ajijic, Rosy has moved from her workshop on Ocampo to her house a few doors east at #9.

UV exposure increases 6 to 10% with every 1000 ft of altitude.
